Wisconsin’s Technical Colleges are geared to help you find Career & Technical Education to fulfill your potential, even while in high school. You can take college courses while in high school through Dual Credit (see Advanced Standing and Transcripted Credit in the table below) or begin a college program while in high school with Youth Options or Youth Apprenticeship.
